It’s 16 years since, at the suggestion of our much-missed friend Rebecca van der Putt, a diverse group of ordinary people interested in prehistoric sites met at an extraordinary place for a picnic.

Site of original ritual gathering. 28 July 2003

From that first meeting grew Heritage Action which subsequently morphed into The Heritage Journal which aims to promote awareness and therefore the welfare of ancient sites. It has perhaps filled a gap as it seems to have struck a chord with many people, both professional and amateur. More than 200 archaeologists have contributed to it and it has been followed by many thousands of people on Twitter (including Nelson Mandela!).

We can’t clam the Journal always says things that everyone agrees with – that would be impossible bearing in mind how many individuals contribute content to it but we can claim two things – first, that everyone that puts it together or writes anything in it has their heart in the right place when it comes to ancient sites and second that anyone with an interest in prehistory who reads it regularly is likely to find at least something to pique their interest. At least, that’s the aim. The guiding principle is to try to make it like a magazine, frequently updated with articles that vary greatly.

You could use the search box to read about the last black bear on Salisbury Plain,  Sandy Gerrard’s new insights into stone rows, the Hillfort Glow experiment, the policeman who spotted three aliens in Aveburythat the Uffington Horse may be a dog, or The Stony Raindrops of Ketley Crag …..
